Kelley Blue Book named the 10 Best Used Hybrids and Electric Cars Under $20,000; 10 Best Plug-in Hybrid Cars Under $40,000; and 10 Longest-Range Electric Cars of 2020. 

“With each new model year, the number of available hybrid and electric vehicles continues to grow,” said Michael Harley, executive editor for Kelley Blue Book. “Regardless of your lifestyle, there are a variety of vehicles to choose from in SUVs, hatchbacks, and sedans, and even at a more budget-conscious price if you’re shopping used. One of the most underrated deals is to buy a used hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or all-electric vehicle – many of these are sold as ‘manufacturer certified’ with extended warranties.
